I would MUCH rather Ubisoft make a good, difficult tactical shooter with squad based gameplay and a plausible story than try and copy real world events no matter how newsworthy they may be.
Oh, wait... I was looking for Ghost Recon... My bad. That doesn't exist anymore. Now we have DIP**** Recon and are supposed to be happy with it!
I am sure that some console players will be happy with the Frankenstein approach you have taken. When you take a game that appealed to adults and make it for AD/HD kids, it TENDS to tick people off. When you take what made the game great in the first place away (squad controls for those who cannot figure that out) and replace it with features from other -much better- shooters, it tends to tick people off. When you do not BOTHER to answer any of the difficult questions that people want answered and just spout the same lame recital, it tends to tick people off.
Not that I expect anyone at Ubi to care. I am sure it is FAR more important to make some half assed, buggy piece of crap than to remain true to a franchise where the fans were INSANELY loyal. Stress ' WERE
I am sure it will be a fun kiddie level shooter. I am also sure that the companies that made Call Of Duty and Battlefield and Medal of Honor will NOT lose any sleep over it. It is simply not good enough to worry them. And the fact that Ubisoft refuses (not CANNOT, but WILL NOT) support their titles is the headstone on a once great franchise.
RIP Ghost Recon, you will be missed.
